In new custody agreement, Britney gets over 50% of time with kids

Britney and K-Fed’s lawyers have gone back to the books and worked out a new custody agreement between the couple. The agreement is only temporary, but for June, July, and August, Britney will get to take care of their children more than 50% of the time. Part of the agreement also outlined exactly what days each parent will take the kids. Once her tour is over, the agreement will go back to being 50/50.

We’ve learned Britney Spears and K-Fed have reached a new agreement on custody — and now Brit has the kids more than 50% of the time — at least during her concert tour.

Lawyers for Brit and Kevin Federline have filed docs with the family law Commissioner Scott Gordon, stating they have reached a new temporary custody arrangement. During June, July and August, Britney will have physical custody of Jayden James and Sean Preston more than 50% of the time. The lawyers submitted a calendar outlining who gets the kids on which day.

Contrary to some reports, we know that before the change Britney had the kids 50% of the time.

The 50/50 split will go back into effect once Britney’s tour is over.

There’s no word on why exactly they decided to change the agreement for such a short time – or why they changed the agreement at all. I have two theories. It may be that since her tour has been expanded, and she’ll definitely be around her handlers for the next few months, they’re testing out a new agreement that they may enact more permanently in the future. This way she’ll be around and protected by her father and crew so that nothing can go wrong. K-Fed always struck me as a tool, but not an unkind or unreasonable guy, and an agreement like this makes sense as a trial period.

My other theory is that Jamie has put down the law with K-Fed – Britney is doing better, so why can’t she have the kids more often? K-Fed can’t say no because, after all, it’s Jamie Spears we’re talking about. The man is kind of scary.

This is all speculation, of course. We’ll see what the official statement is later.

    Ok, I admit I’m totally cynical about life; so I see this 2 ways as well.

    1. It’s a “trial run” to see how Britney responds to having the additional responsibility of her boys, in preparation for a more permanent agreement later.

    2. This is Jamie’s way of keeping her happy on the road so she’ll keep touring.

    I hope #2 is wrong; I really do. In her struggle back to “normalcy”, she’s really grown on me and I’m wishing her all the best. We’ll see, won’t we?

    I think K-Fed has always stated that he wanted the boys to spend more time with their mother. I too am happy that he’s reasonable and allowing this to happen. I think it’s good for both parties.

    Unlike some of the posters, I think that Jamie Spears is a great father to Britney, and he is giving her the support she needs. Everyone keeps forgetting the fact that the courts don’t take kids away from their mother and assign a grown woman a conservator unless she is SEVERELY TROUBLED. I understand that Jamie is very strict with Britney, but look how far she has come since she hit rock bottom! It’s obvious that the guy really loves his daugther and feels very protective of her. He was there for her when she needed someone who would love her unconditionally. When you look at pathetic, floundering, drug-addicted stars like Amy Winehouse and Lindsey Lohan (whose parents are in extreme denial), you have to admire the guy for stepping up and taking charge of his daughter’s runaway life. So Britney pays him a salary for managing her career–Big Deal! Better someone who loves her than someone who just wants to exploit or manipulate her. All the evidence points to the fact that his guidance allows her to function and live a much healthier life!

    just want to say that i’m so happy for both Britney and K-Fed that they were able to make this happen. it’s really great for the kids and for everyone all around that the 2 can get along this way.

    life is short, let it be peaceful and as happy as it can be, especially for kids.

  5. Lauren says:

    I wonder how much he sold them to her for. Either way it’s good that she gets to spend more time with them. That’s got to be the best thing for her right now.

  6. Sakota says:

    Considering what she pays in support, she should have more access. I think she loves them more than ever and chances are Federscum will have less money at his personal disposal.

    She might end up taking care of them without supporting her deadbeat ex and God knows who else.

    “Unlike some of the posters, I think that Jamie Spears is a great father to Britney,”

    So do I. He’s pulled her up to having hit singles and looking better than ever. I wish he had had more control when she was a teen, but instead her witch of a mother let her get hurt time and time again.

  7. GQ says:

    She get to see the kids but no custody. K Fed is being nice and giving her 50% time. Legal custody is not a part of that. Which means she still gotta pay but at least she can see her kids.

  8. Cathy says:

    Justalark – I was going to post and then saw that you said exactly what I wanted to say, but better!

    The initial custody arrangement was set when Britney was at her most vulnerable time of her life with a nervous break down. But she is back in business and recovered now. Federline a jobless man with 5 kids and no skills or prospect knows very well that if the case goes back to court he may lose custody and his meal tickets all together so that’s why he agreed with the new arrangement.

    Let’s just hope she can be a good mom to those little cuties at least 50% of the time.
